Sweet and Spicy Chili Garlic Noodles are a quick and easy 15 minute (or less) noodle bowl. They're naturally vegan with a flavor packed asian garlic sauce that has only 5 ingredients! It's the best quick noodle recipe!. Add your favorite protein and veggies and make it a meal!


  • 4 tbsps Braggs liquid aminos, (see notes for soy sauce, Tamari options*)
  • 1 and 1/2 to 2 and 1/2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce, I use 2 & 1/2 and it's spicy but oh so good
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoons granulated garlic (powder)
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions, green part only, ( 3-4 green onions)
  • 8 oz uncooked spaghetti pasta noodles, use gluten free if needed*

This recipe is easily doubled, tripled, etc...


  1. Cook pasta noodles according to package instructions, drain but don't rinse.
  2. While pasta is cooking whisk together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl, (not green onions) microwave for 30 seconds or so until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add cooked pasta, and sauce to a medium serving bowl, mix with tongs. Garnish with green onions
  4. Serve and Enjoy! For step by step photos, serving suggestions and more see above post


  • I definitely recommend using Braggs for this recipe. Low sodium soy sauce can be used but will be saltier. Lite Tamari might work but I haven't tried it
  • Use any noodles for this dish, rice noodles for gluten free, soba noodles, ramen, etc,..
  • Feel free to add steamed veggies, tofu, toasted sesame seeds or whatever floats your boat. I like these noodles as is for a quick and easy noodle bowl snack on my couch.
  • I would say this recipe feeds 2 people for a meal and 4 people for a snack.
